Are you going to add more units? you could add japanese turtle warships, those things are massive sndsamurais (which I suppose you've already thought of).
those mountains look more like big rocks now. everything else seems great

Wow, this looks almost painted. I guess they don't call you selout for anything huh.
the thing that's bothering me, is that i can't really tell what the sprites are. I see a little knight, some dwarfs i what appears to be a prison cell and satan.
it's overall good, but i dislike the fact that i have to stare at it for a while before i know what's going on.

Is there anyway you could make tiles darker? The first thing that came to mind when i saw it without reading anything, was a man in a snowy forest.
The tiles, pixel wise are fine, and I could definitely spot the Ocean Sphere's inspiration.

You might want to clean up the outlines on the gates.
Do you have any lava animations yet? i can't really picture the current tiles as lava yet, they look more like red rocks.
everything else seems pretty good.

Wow I don't know what these are, but they sure are neat.
any more info on these lil dudes? as far as pixels go in this piece, i really cant criticize anything, except maybe the outline on the bearded man, which is a little weird. is it pure sel-out?

Take into consideration that these type of games usually work with a height counter to avoid confusion.
So, for example, if your player moves up to a slightly taller tile, the height counter (1h), will change (to 2h).

It's really plain..
add some color ramping to break the monotony.
it's suffering from A LOT of banding, so get rid of that asap.
take away the black outline, and add some aa. if I remember correctly, Cloud's sword is much bigger than this, maybe make it a little bit longer?
those circles in the middle make it look really flat. add some depth by adding shadows and highlights.
Your lighting seems inconsistent, choose a light source and work with it.

You're on the right track, it looks really good, but it's just a little too boring. keep up the good work  :y:

The skulls are meant to be bronze, silver and gold, which I found a bit difficult to convey in EGA colors.

Hi arachne
I hope you don't mind, but I took a shot at the skulls you're working on:

The metals were definitely a challenge, gold being the most difficult mainly because of that annoying pink/orange. I think the gold one was the worst.
 On the silver skull, I took out a lot of the blue hues which made it look a lot colder and icier (unless that's what you were going for.)
I also changed the width of the skulls, since I thought they were a bit too chubby.

They might not be excellent, but I hope this helps. good luck  :y:

EDIT: after a few iterations, I managed to get this:

the only downside is dithering, which may take away the smoothness of gold.
